Thematic brief: What role can architecture play in combatting homelessness?

During the first part of 2022, the main thematic focus of the Housing Solutions Platform has been to further explore what role architecture can play in tackling homelessness, in light of the New European Bauhaus initiative.

This thematic brief contains a summary of the discussion from our two latest debates on the New European Bauhaus from a homelessness perspective and how it can foster architecture for urban inclusion. We highlight some innovative and inclusive architectural projects from Peter Barber Architects, Michael Maltzan Architecture and Agile Property and Homes. The brief also includes an in-depth interview with designer Hanna Hoyt from Michael Maltzan Architecture and concludes with a summary on current trends and a discussion on the possibilities and limitations of architecture to address homelessness.
